Saben debuted their luxury luggage collection ‘Going Places‘ today and the stunning new range is a first for a New Zealand luxury accessories label. The brand have been creating covetable handbags and accessories for 16 years and applied their expert knowledge and experience to designing luggage that is gorgeous and practical.
It’s a smart move with travel on the rise for many people due to the societal ‘wanderlust’ from our social media feeds and the changing nature of life and work. Interestingly, international departures across the globe has doubled from 600 million to 1.3 billion in the past two decades. (Deloitte report, 2018)
That’s also the case for Saben founder Roanne Jacobson who travels frequently and has that ‘wanderlust’ in her blood as four familial generations have each called a different country home. Not to mention her career and business which has included much global travel and meant she knows exactly what is required to create the best luggage possible.
“I’m so excited by our first collection of Saben luggage,” says Roanne. “In all my years of traveling for work and pleasure I have never found a set of suitcases that look beautiful and are thoughtfully designed. Until now it’s seemed like the combination of aesthetics and functionality has been too much to ask for as a traveller – a problem we’ve enjoyed solving. I’m my first customer!”
Saben’s new luxury luggage has been carefully crafted the same way that each handbag collection is for the brand. The intention being to create a premium product from quality materials that lasts and is functional as well as stylish. Each piece of luggage features rose gold hardware, a multi-stage retractable handle, 360 degree dual spinner wheels to glide in any direction, two zippered inner dividers for ease of packing, and a durable moulded polycarbonate case. The interior has Saben’s slogan ‘you lucky lucky thing’ printed on the lining. Available in navy and black, there are three sizes – cabin bag, medium suitcase and large suitcase to choose from.
Saben’s Going Places luxury luggage is available online and in stores now.
